Pioneering Women Lawyers

Here's a great site for anyone interested in the history of women lawyers in the United States or women's legal history. The Women's Legal History Website, created by Stanford University Law School Professor Barbara Babcock and her students, incorporates the work of the Women's Legal History Biography Project. The site is divided into three sections: the Women Lawyers Index, with links to books, articles, speeches, and case law relating to each of the more than 700 lawyers listed; the Clara Shortridge Foltz pages, documenting the life and times of the first woman lawyer in California; and Research Resources, including a wealth of web sites, articles, documents and research guides.
